Bindmans LLP is delighted to announce that Alison Stanley has been shortlisted for the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year 2023 Award in the Immigration & Asylum Law category.
The Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards launched over two decades ago to recognise the continued commitment of the nominated lawyers to legal aid, and access to justice. The awards shine a spotlight on the life-changing work of legal aid lawyers, and the power of legal aid to bring about positive change.
Since 1984 Alison has specialised in immigration law and associated fields. Alison has been joint Head of the Immigration team at Bindmans for many years and stepped down from this role in March 2023.
Alison has extensive experience in all aspects of immigration, asylum and nationality law. She is known for her thorough and proactive preparation of applications and her calm, patient, and compassionate approach.
Her work has secured protection for many people, reunited families and changed lives for good in the most fundamental ways – by protecting the vulnerable from persecution and securing the immigration status, or nationality, people have needed to make this country their home.
Liz Barratt, Head of Immigration, Asylum and Nationality, comments:
Alison has been at the forefront of immigration law for over 40 years and has accomplished an enormous amount, both for her clients and the law generally.
It is very fitting indeed that after her many years of unwavering commitment to representing people with immigration issues on legal aid that she has been shortlisted for this award.
We wish Alison and all other LALY nominees the best of luck at the upcoming awards ceremony in July.
